As we head into the last stretch before the holidays, many of us will be heading to the mall or to the airport. If you find yourself with a low battery on your cell phone or tablet, beware of using the kiosks and charging stations you see in the airports and malls. Those USB charging stations could have malware to steal your personal information and money – it is called ‘juice jacking’ and it takes less than a minute for the virus to be transferred to your device.

Best practice is to take along your AC power adapters and plug into a regular power outlet or bring along a portable charging device.
Be safe out there this holiday season!
